I don't know why Horner and Marko are on the payroll. Its very obvious who's calling the shoots. I suspect sooner or later it will all end in tears between Vettel and Webber.

"They took it into their own hands"?? You mean HE took it into HIS own hands to completely undermine you christian horner! And saying he'll do it again to me says he has absolutely no respect for your authority as team principal.

Don't know what all these negative comments are about-
regardless of the driver rivalry, this team is the most COMPETENT and together team in F1 today (and has been for the last 3+ years.
I see a lot of jealousy and contempt here, we should be happy to see this kind of rivalry and competition in F1...

I hope webber is let go from the team after this season and Kimi is brought in, that will make for an incredible season. webber is nothing better than a test driver.

Like it or not, C. Horner will go down in history as the principal of one of the most successful F1 teams of the modern era. Doesn't matter if he is perceived as lacking in authority or full of bs, the reality is the number of WDCs and CCs this team has already won. Not to mention the amount of publicity they have generated for the Red Bull brand, which is after all the whole point. The team delivers. And a little bit of controversy for the media mill every now and then doesn't hurt.

Richard - "but the real question is WHY did horner make this odd decision. could it have something to do with it being webbers 200th start, and horner and webber being team partners in f3? a celebration win, perhaps?"

Richard, you and John sound the same...?

As I am sure you are aware, the reason for Horner to make the call BEFORE/DURING the race was to save the new (very easy to ruin) tyres, common knowledge in the paddock... You can come to some races and have a chat if you like, learn some stuff? The leader after the final stop would win the race, that was Webber and the stage of which the "multi21" was issued.
